A balanced life is a pipe dream

We all have dreams
Some big
some small
and some forget to dream at all

All poems aside, for the past 5 years I’ve dreamed of a balanced life. I attempt to plan, write a to do list and create routines all for the sake of a balanced life. However, day after day, month after month the balanced life that I yearn for… is like a see-saw with my 6 year old and myself.

There are days that I tell myself…
Follow your list line by line and you’ll accomplish everything your heart desires.

But today… I came to the realization that a balanced life is a pipe dream.  Do what you do, do it with excellence and to the best of your ability. Whatever doesn’t get done, get over it!

Nonetheless, not achieving a balanced life is not an excuse to live a life of mediocrity,  forgetting to dream, accomplish the goals and tasks we’ve set in place. The days we I don’t get to accomplish my tasks and dreams, I must follow through with them the next day and the day after that.

Even though a balanced life is a pipe dream.  Don’t forget to dream.

  1. I think you’re right. There will always be something that needs to get “done”. Do what you can, but enjoy life in the process.
